Bible Ballistics: BBs #410 Gratitude Is An Attitude Not Just A Day!!!
“But I am poor and sorrowful:
let thy salvation,
set me up on high.
30 I will praise the name of God
with a song,
and will magnify him
31 This also shall please the LORD
better than an ox
or bullock that hath horns and hoofs.” Psalm 69:29-31
I just want to share a few passages to remind us to keep our “Attitude of Gratitude” every day, not just one day a year. My favorite question for this time of year is, “Are you humbly grateful, or grumbly hateful?” It’s a question that only you can answer!
“O come, let us sing unto the LORD:
let us make a joyful noise
to the rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come before his presence
and make a joyful noise
unto him with psalms.
3 For the LORD is a great God,
and a great King above all gods.” Psalm 95:1-3
May we ever praise Him with our grateful hearts, and live a continual life of praise and gratitude before a world full of ‘selflies’, greed, and entitlement. May our heart of gratitude be contagious to those we encounter each day. A smile can change the world around us—some sourpuss may be waiting to see you smiling ‘Attitude of Gratitude’ today. May we spread the gratitude and thankfulness everywhere we go!
“Oh that men would praise the LORD
for his goodness,
and for his wonderful works
to the children of men!
22 And let them sacrifice
the sacrifices of thanksgiving,
and declare his works
with rejoicing.” Psalm 107:21-22
Even as James reminds us today:
“Do not err, my beloved brethren.
17 Every good gift
and every perfect gift
is from above,
and cometh down
from the Father of lights,
with whom is no variableness,
neither shadow of turning.” James 1:16-17
Remember ‘gratitude’ and ‘thankfulness’ aren’t just a “seasonal” option:
“Then he said unto them,
Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry;
for the joy of the LORD is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10
“I will praise thee,
with my whole heart;
I will shew forth
all thy marvellous works.
2 I will be glad
I will sing praise
to thy name,
O thou most High.” Psalm 9:1-2
Amen and Amen!!!
Let’s determine to truly “shew forth” all His “marvellous works” with our genuinely grateful hearts– full of His wondrous love and grace. Blessings on your day!
